The Student Employment Job Board is provided as a convenience only and does not constitute an endorsement of any student employee by The Ohio State University. Student Financial Aid has not screened or reviewed the background or qualifications of any potential student employee. By posting a position on the Student Employment Board, employers acknowledge that they are solely responsible for all decisions, obligations and duties relating to employment and agree that neither The Ohio State University nor Student Financial Aid shall be responsible for the actions or omissions of any student employee.

Student Financial Aid reserves the right to refuse to post any job which appears to be inappropriate in nature or to discriminate against applicants based on race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation, handicap, marital status, or veteran status. Furthermore, jobs that are strictly commission/quota based, and those jobs that require use of a student’s social media profile will not be posted. We reserve the right to deny postings for any additional reason deemed appropriate by the University.
